//! Class for the handling of simple configuration files.
/*! The file format used by this class is similar to that of MS
  Windows INI files. It is possible to divide a file into sections
  which are denoted by brackets (e.g. <tt>[Section]</tt>). All values
  are stored in the form <tt>\<key\> = \<value\></tt> and are assigned
  to a section. The INIFile class is able to store values of the types
  string, double, signed and unsigned int and bool.

  The usual way to work with this class consists of the following steps:

  - Open an existing or create a new INI file with a call to connect()

  - Check for the existence of entries (entry_exists()), access stored
    values (get_entry()) or add new entries (add_entry()). Note that
    the function add_section() is obsolete and only kept for backward
    compatibility. A new section is now implicitly generated by
    specifying it in a call to add_entry().

  - disconnect() from the INI file. Only now are all entries and
    sections written to the file.

  To be able to use the INIFile class, an object is created. After
  that the object is connected to a given filename. This means that,
  if the file exists, it is opened and the content is parsed and
  stored in memory. The second (boolean) parameter to the connect()
  function indicates that the file should be created if it does not
  exists.  \until }

  Now a new section named <tt>Main</tt> is generated and several
  entries are added. Note that the INI file is not written to disc
  until the disconnect() function is called. All additions and
  modifications are only performed on the stored data in memory.
  \until iniFile.disconnect();

  In the second part of this example the just created INI file is
  opened (connected) again and the created entries are read and printed
  to <tt>stdout</tt>.
  \until }
  \until }
  \until }
